The Board and Management of Kaduna State Traffic Law Enforcement Authority (KASTELEA) on Sunday announced the termination of the appointment of 124 Marshals.
A statement signed by Abdulkadir Z. Ahmed, a retired army colonel and General Manager of KASTELEA, said the sack is as a result of various misconducts that do not conform to the ideals and the policies of the State Government.
He said some of the Marshals were found wanting for extortion while others absconded from their duty posts.
According to Ahmed, “Out of the 124 Marshals, one was outrightly dismissed from service for extortion, another one for gross misconduct, while 122 Marshals were relieved of their appointment for absconding from their duty posts.
“The termination of the appointment followed all the laid down procedure as prescribed in the Terms and Condition of Service, TACOS, of the Authority.
“The board said the move is part of its continuous improvement effort geared towards the repositioning the Authority for better and efficient service delivery,” he said.
The GM added that management has given all the sacked Marshals two weeks within which to return all KASTELEA properties in their position/care. Noting that failure to do so will attract severe sanctions from the Authority.
“In this line, KASTELEA wishes to assure members of the public of its relentless service to traffic safety in Kaduna State.
“And the general public is hereby warned not to give any form of gratification or monetary payment to Marshals of the Authority,” he said.
Mr. Ahmed advised the public to be orderly and obey the law at all times, particularly during the Sallah holidays.
